Brake Pads vs. Brake Rotors: What's the Difference?

Brake rotors and brake pads help your Acura sedan or SUV come to a stop. But have you ever thought about the difference between brake pads and brake rotors? Brake pads do a lot of work when stopping your vehicle and need the most attention. The brake rotor is the part that attaches to the steering spindle or wheel bearing hub assembly. When the brake pads apply pressure to the rotors, they will slow down and eventually stop the vehicle from moving.

If you use your brakes properly, your brake pads can last around 50,000 miles, while your rotors can last around 70,000 miles. Of course, there are factors that can affect these numbers, so be sure to contact our service team if you have any questions.
